Intrepid phone repair

Lucy with nice phone repair guy

This post is to let people know that our phone is now working.

Turns out the trouble was a nest of lady bug beetles in the junction box.

Thumbs up to our Phone Cooperative for sending out a repair guy so fast based on an email Anna sent out last night. We both felt bad the guy had to get his feet wet, but we informed the office in Anna's email that a creek needed to be crossed to access the box.
